America’s Test Kitchen. Dec. 2019. 256p. ISBN 9781945256974. $27.99. COOKING
Bowls here include the standard grain, bean, and noodle dishes, as well as soups and salads, which are served in bowls but sometimes overlooked in bowl discussions. These healthy meals typically comprise vegetables, protein, and a distinctive sauce in one dish. While providing many specific and delicious recipes, America’s Test Kitchen takes the stance that once the basics are mastered, any cook can create innovative and satisfying bowls. Basics such as developing a pantry, along with serving and storing bowls are all included, as are instructions for preparing the basic ingredients: grains, noodles, proteins, vegetables, toppings, dressings, and sauces. Each recipe begins with a discussion of why the recipe works and ends with suggestions for customizing.
VERDICT Home cooks can either follow the recipes exactly or adjust them to suit their own tastes, allowing both novices and veterans to find something useful and delicious in this fun, innovative offering.
